Cops to start travelling with AED’s

The Cayman Heart fund has donated 20 Automated External Defibrillators (A.E.D) to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (R.C.I.P.S) and the devices will now travel with officers in their vehicles.

R.C.I.P.S Constable Mr. Brandaughn Phillips said having the defibrillators readily accessible in Police units allows for safety procedures to be administered in a timely manner especially in the event where medical respondents may not be the first on scene.

“Suffering from experience I know there have been times that I have been able to get to a call before the Fire department, before the ambulance,  everyone will be able to see that a Police car is easily accessible than other emergency services because there’s a lot more of us so we have that ability to deploy readily and more fastly than others,” Officer Phillips said.

The Police Constable said there is an A.E.D machine in every major police station and every substation.
